Josef Müldner (b. 1880).

 

OCEAN FOREBODING

 

My heart, thou long wert sore distressed,
Now sweetly canst thou take thy rest.

By ocean's shore, where sand-hills be,
'Neath brown-lined sails upon the sea.

'Mid scent of ocean-air and grass,
Around in herds the cattle pass.

Wild poppies in the sun-light sway—-
Where am I, when they fade away?
